Hello,

I'm Karen, a mother and grandmother (and soon to be again in August!) in central Ohio. Technically I've been quilting for about 25 years. I taught myself to sew and quilt when I was first married and my husband sold cars, which meant he was often gone nights and weekends. Buying my first Singer machine at Joanne's kept me busy and out of trouble - ha!

Quilting has been an on again, off again hobby for me, but I love fabric and looking at books and magazine and seeing what you can create from it. My dream would be to get serious about quilting and perhaps sell some, but I don't think my technique is there yet. Plus, I have no desire to make big bed quilts, but rather smaller, wallhanging size quilts. Here's the last one I did, a convergence quilt from Ricky Tims' book:

Glad to have found this community of quilters and I'm anxious to see what everyone can do!

Hi Karen and Welcome,    We all enjoy sharing our love for quilting.  You can check out the Show and Tell Gallery and see what is going on around here.  You can also click on groups, then see what groups are going on.  Some do applique, we're doing a Mystery Quilt (up to #8), etc.  You can even see some of our antics when we go to retreats.  Have fun and take a good look around.
